Description: Bubba's is only an hour’s drive from spectacular Yellowstone National Park. If you're looking for mouth-watering, hickory-smoked meats, look no further than Bubba's Bar-B-Que. Enjoy in the restaurant, or take it with you for picnics and road trips -- our meats are awesome alone or in sandwiches. We’re sure to have something to satisfy your hunger whether you’ve been hiking all day or are going to the rodeo in the evening. Not only do we have the best bar-b-que in Wyoming, but we also have sandwiches, burgers, steaks, an awesome salad bar, and great choices for the kids. Don't forget about our homemade desserts and generous selection of micro-brews.

I chose this place because I had a Restaurant.com coupon...but wish I hadn't...We had
10 in our family there and the food was OK, but many of us didn't even eat all of our meal...nothing special...bland pulled pork...very tough and meatless spare ribs (they were out of the baby back ribs at 5:00 pm....Good beans...Not going back..Poor - Poor service.

Greg, I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit with us. We strive for 100% satisfaction, but admittedly sometimes we fall short. However, I feel the need to clarify one thing, I can assure you that we do not serve raw chicken. We smoke our chicken during the entire cooking process. As stated on our menu, this will leave the meat of the chicken with a pink color. This is due to a chemical reaction between the smoke of the wood, and the blood of the meat. This is the same process that creates the coveted smoke ring most good bar-b-que professionals look for in a beef brisket. While it sometimes can give the appearance of raw chicken, especially in the thigh or leg where the meat is fatter and contains more blood, it is not raw. We cook our chicken to over 170 deg. -- above the requied food safety requirements of 165 specifically for this reason, to ensure it is perfectly safe.

Was disappointed with this outing. Heard so much about it and was looking forward to eating there. The baby back ribs were overdone and dry. The ribeye steak was supposed to be medium rare but came out closer to medium well. Service was fine.

The food I had was not horrible, but it was forgettable. The couple we were with had the beans and really liked them. My husband had ribs and he was not at all impressed. The best thing about this BBQ place is the staff.
